Books Wrap Ups

October Wrap Up

November 8, 2018

University took over my reading this month. I'm always a lot slower reading when I'm reading anything like this. I find it takes more concentration and I have to read pages multiple times. I didn't have a great reading month, I ended up ill a fair few times I couldn't cope with reading whilst I had migraines. Hopefully, I'll pick up my reading over November... I didn't love…

Burn takes us from his childhood right up to the moment he was sentenced for his crimes. Covering everything from his jobs as a youth, his married life and his family. The detail was astounding. I can't recall how long…

Ezra & Gil

November 1, 2018

Slowly I'm eating my way around the Northern Quarter of Manchester, often with the assistance and expertise of my friends. This day I'd arranged to meet Fi, an ex-bookseller friend, blogger, Youtuber and of late pin designer extraordinaire, for lunch. Neither of us are good at making desicions which usually means we end up eating Sushi at either Yo Sushi or Wasabi. This day Fi suggested we try…
